AbstractAims: The study aims to evaluate the antifungal action of some natural oils (sun flower oil, sesame oil, nigella sativa, flax oil and ginger oil) in relation to nystatin suspension on acrylic resin denture base materials. Materials and method: The total number of specimens were seventy, they were (10×10×2mm). Half of the specimens were prepared from heat cured acrylic resin and the other half prepared from cold cured acrylic resin denture base materials, for each group they were immersed for 8hr in these oils after they had been infected with Candida albicans and incubated for 48hr. This study compared antifungal efficiency of sun flower oil, sesame oil, nigella sativa, flax oil and ginger oil. The statistical tests used were one way analysis of variance test, Dunnett t-test. Results: There were signifi-cant differences between all tested oils and distilled water in relation to antifungal action at (P=0.05). Conclusions: All the tested natural oils were effective antifungal agent.
